Long Life

I've had this router for over 6 years now, with three ISP's and its never missed a beat. Very occasionally [every 3 months or so] I note a slow down and do a reboot. Love the simple GUI and the auto firmware update. I have a large single level home and WIFI is available everywhere and to my outside cameras. Was going to update recently but decided I'd wait until this gives up the ghost. Show details

An expensive waste of time. Constantly loses wifi

This modem worked OK for the first six months or so. GUI a bit clunky, but fine VDSL/NBN.

Since then, it has deteriorated to the point where it constantly 'loses' the 2.4Ghz band, or all Wifi stops completely, requiring a reboot & then taking over five minute to start & resync.

I have factory reset, updated to latest firmware & read various forums for fixes.

An expensive waste of time. Show details

Terrible router

Very cheaply made. The admin panel is like 6 years old. And you can't even ping your own router. Dumbest 'feature' I have ever seen in a router.

Packet loss of 30% is normal on these.

GUI does not work correctly

After 3 hours of trying to work with the GUI loading I give up. It is so slow And nerve wracking I reached for another modem router. In my view a total waste of money Show details

Wifi unstable

Constant wifi dropouts make thse unreliable for me - I can never count on a successfull upload of work to a client. I've tried all suggestions & fixes from various sites- resets, firmware updates, channel switching - still no good. Tried Asus helpline - they were unhelpful. I've had 2 different brands of modem before this, neither of which caused such problems. Best left alone, save youself some grief. Show details

Continuously losing internet after probably 6 months

It seems that most modems had problems after one year. This one is worse and it last about 6 months, although it's much more expensive than my other modems. My house is good and I was happy to pay more to buy this high end modem, hoping good signal in my house. However, recently I experienced continuous loss of internet. Had to reboot the modem to resolve the problem. Would not buy it again.

Great range and features

Easy to setup. Stable connection achieving consistent speed. Love the VPN feature - able to connect my USB to the device and view the content on my smart TV (including movies).

The monitoring app is also very comprahensive and easy to navigate.

Great range also. easily covers my 200 sqm house without the need for boosters.

Overall very happy customer.

It says this modem router is compatible with cable, but I don't see a coaxial cable connector on it in the pictures. I have signed up to iiNet's cable broadband plan in Geelong, VIC but looking for the best modem router instead of their provided one. Can anyone answer if this model will work with iiNet cable?
